Wherever Hillary Clinton goes, Huma Abedin is never far behind.
Abedin started out as the First Lady’s White House intern in the 1990s, and went on to become Hillary’s aide, personal advisor and now, Vice Chair of Clinton’s presidential campaign.
However, that brief biography doesn’t begin to scratch the surface. Abedin’s family background, and her own connections to Muslim organizations, have raised questions for years.
Now that Hillary has a chance of becoming president, answering these questions has become more urgent than ever.
At Breitbart, com, Roger Stone lays out the details at great length. Abedin was born in Michigan in 1976; however:
Two years after Huma was born, the family moved to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia and with the patronage of Abdullah Omar Naseef of the Muslim World League, founded the Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs with offices in Saudi Arabia and London, England. In the 1980’s Syed Abedin was a counselor of the Muslim World League. After his death in 1993, his wife Saleha took over and serves as director of the IMMA (Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs) and as the editor of that organization’s academic magazine, the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs. More recently she still edits the Journal and is also a part of the administration of Dar Al-Hekma Women’s College. (…)
That’s what all the fuss is about. Since 1962, the Muslim World League has been funded by the Saudi government to the tune of more than $1.3 billion.
Naseef, the Muslim World League, and the government of Pakistan created the Rabita Trust in 1988. Naseef was a sponsor and financial supporter of Syed Abedin’s IMMA.
Just a month after the 9/11 jihadist attack left thousands dead and brought down the World Trade Center, President George W. Bush’s Executive Order designated the Rabita Trust as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist Entity and the Treasury Department froze its assets on October 12, 2001.
Stone goes on to report that:
[F]rom April 2005 to March 2006, Huma was paid a total of $27,999.92, yet on September 18, 2006, she bought an apartment in Washington D.C. costing $649,000.
Over the years, anyone who has questioned Abedin’s background, and her relationship with Clinton, has been dismissed as a conspiracy nut. Mainstream magazine Vanity Fair dared to run a story about it in February and it was quickly targeted by Media Matters for America, which Stone describes as “Hillary Clinton’s private propaganda machine.”
Reporters who are curious about the Clinton/Abedin relationship may be reluctant to ask questions because they don’t want to be seen as helping Donald Trump. However, as Stone puts it, “Huma Abedin has been at Clinton’s side for decades, and it’s time America got some answers.”
